  • Water wetter and rain x

    This product called water wetter looks like it would be a good product to use in our model a's

    How many use rain-x how does it work in conjunction with your wipers also does it help wiper blades keep from squeaking?

    I used water wetter and distilled water on my rebuild engine while breaking it in :-) Now antifreeze.
    Rain-x is get stuff, above 45mph I don't need my wipers, in my modern cars, haven't used it on the "A"

      i really like the rain-ex on the vintage cars since their wipers are more a decoration anyway

        My wiper works just wondering if rain-x improves it.


        • #6
          the rainex will keep the entire glass clear, not so much the wiper. we love rainex here!

          My buddy swears by Water Wetter vs. antifreeze. I seem to have read that the boiling point of antifreeze is lower than either water or water with water wetter. I did remove my AF and put in a Water Wetter solution. It didn't seem to affect the car temp significantly.

          Rain X is great for all cars, especially old ones, for all the reasons listed above. Great for modern cars, as you don't need to turn on the wipers right away. It seems logical that they might not squeak as much with Rain X, but I have not conducted any experiments.

            Rain X works great. I apply it to my Tudor's windshield in the spring and fall. I'm not out in the rain very much, but when I am I don't even need to worry about trying to use the wipers.

            For the moderns, I use their windshield washer solvent in the reservoirs and it is very effective.

              I use Water Wetter with distilled water in the summer as my 31 Slant Town Sedan seems to run a bit cooler. I change over to a 50/50 mix of Sierra antifreeze and distilled water for the winter since I drive my car year-round. Rain-X also works very well on my windshield and helps my little wiper work better but if driving at speed, I do not need the wiper. I also use Rain-X on my wind wings for better side visibility.

                Good points have never tried either yet but am planning too.

                  If you "THINK" it runs cooler with WATER-WETTER, it "DOES"---It's like taking a SUGAR pill!---BUT, a SUGAR pill WON'T substitute for an ANTI-PAIN-PILL, trust me. I'm waitin' for my VICODIN to "kick" in, it takes 27 LONG MINUTES!!

                    I'm still waiting for the pharmacy to refill my Viox prescription. The crap they replaced it with doesn't work worth *@#%&*

                  Friend, Rick, has to get a "P" test, EVERY time, to get a refill!
                  I've been on VICODIN, for 22 years, to keep MOBILE. For me, they work well, like they were originally formulated to work. They've become like a part of my Body Chemistry.

                    Through how deep water can a Model A cross? (Shower thoughts)
                    by Mrtherich
                    First, driving through deep puddles is a bad idea, you can't see what's underneath the water surface or how deep it will go.

                    I was recently watching a video of modern cars crossing a river ford in the UK and a lot of fails, from people not realizing cars and deep water don't go well together, or forgetting even their expensive untouchable bmw still breathes air..

                    Coolant & Rust Inhibitor Disposal
                    by Bud_D
                    I have been running distilled water in my A for a while. I used to run water plus Prestone rust inhibitor. My concern is what to do with the water plus rust inhibitor when I want to change the coolant. Where do you take this stuff? I don't want to just dump it on the ground. Lately what I have done is take the water out of the A, filter it to get rid of scale and grease, then keep it for next...

                    Mitch I looked at your link for thermocare my engine had been rebuilt and tanked but i am sue it is not like new if one uses the thermocare i assume you drain the anti-freeze add this product and distilled water and drive the car .
                    How long and then you drain and flush it out and put back in the 50/50 antifreeze mix.
                    What about water wetter
                    What can you add that will keep rust ...

                    Flax Water Bags for your Model A
                    by Tom Wesenberg
                    I thought someone was wanting one of these water bags recently.
                    Is Colorado a foreign country?
                    The bag says "Imported" and "Made in Colorado".

                    Has anyone ever seen those water bags that hung on the front of cars? Usually when crossing the desert out west.

                    by Guest
                    I have heard a great many conflicting opinions on the use of antifreeze in the Model A. What is all 'yall's opinion on what kind of antifreeze to use for cold weather driving?

                    Touring with the model A in the rain and waterproofing.
                    by BNCHIEF
                    On a recent tour I was on it rained and sometimes very hard, knew about model t fords and issues in the rain but this A was my first. Some fellows experienced water in their distributors and I assume it got in there from driving down the road and water entering the distributor thru the cap locator pin I cannot imagine it coming in on the backside where the advance lever is. The front area would...
